If you loved the show "Mister Rogers Neighborhood" when you were a kid and you just so happen to also equally love Tom Hanks, today is going to be a good day for you!

TriStar Pictures says Hanks will be playing Mr. Rogers in the upcoming biopic “You Are My Friend.”

According to a press release, the film "is inspired by a real-life friendship between Fred Rogers and award-winning journalist Tom Junod. In the heartwarming story, a cynical journalist begrudgingly accepts an assignment to write a profile piece on the beloved icon and finds his perspective on life transformed."

Jack and Carolyn talked about it on the air. Listen here:
